Video: Van Gundy talks Celtics-Heat
After calling the Celtics' Game 7 victory over the Sixers, ESPN broadcast team Jeff Van Gundy and Mike Breen discuss Boston's chances of defeating the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference finals.
Van Gundy thinks the Heat are the heavy favorites, but does see a scenario in which the Celtics could pull off the upset (though it does involve a "magic potion").
"I expect Miami to win handily," Van Gundy said. "But if (Rajon) Rondo and Ray Allen can play well -- you've got to have (Paul) Pierce have a big series against LeBron James -- but Ray Allen has to make Dwyane Wade guard him, he's going to have to make shots.
"Historically, he has played well against the Miami Heat. So if he can drink some magic potion and get healthy, and get his groove back offensively, and Rondo plays strong, they have a chance (with Miami likely missing Chris Bosh)."
